Bathing Area
“St Peter's Pool is a beautiful natural pool at Delimara Point, Marsaxlokk in the Southwest of Malta. The sea at St Peters Pool is crystal clear with an amazing azure and light green colours and offers excellent snorkelling opportunities. The flat rocks provide perfect sunbathing areas and the high rocks offer some shade from the strong sun. Ladders are available to access the sea and the more adventurous bathers have the option of diving into the waters from a few meters up. St Peter’s Pool is popular with the locals, especially for those living in nearby villages and with tourists who are looking for a quieter place to spend their day. However, due to its remote location and bad roads leading there it’s rarely ever crowded and you can always find a spot just for yourself. Make sure that you take with you whatever you need for the day as there are no facilities whatsoever. This natural swimming pool is not easy to access and is not recommended for small children. The rocky beach remains however an absolute treat for those looking for a special spot out of the busy touristic areas. Parking: There is parking on top of the cliff, but the road leading there is very bad. Parking by the main road is recommended. Recommended for children: If confident in swimming”

“Around 20 minutes on foot away from St Peter's Pool, one can find il-Kalanka Bay. It is larger than St. Peter's Pool and sometimes less frequented by tourists. Before going down to Kalanka Bay, walk for another 5 minutes and stop to explore the 19th century lighthouse of Delimara. There is also as adjacent British Fort. The place is good point to view Marsaxlokk Bay, including Birzebbuga. ”
